. >> the largest possible deal. >>chris: the president wants to go big so why are the numbers going down? welcome, everyone, i am here for neil cavuto in "your world." a new round of debt talks get under way at the white house but it is not all smiles. because the president's listen is not looking so grand. we have gone from talk of $2 trillion in cuts to $1.7 trillion and now closer to $1.5 trillion. and there is in guarantee that money won't go lower as the talks drag on. utah republican senator lee thinks we need to go back but $1.5 trillion in cuts spread out over ten years is that going big? >>guest: no, in the big at all. i am not sure it is going anywhere. one congress cannot bind another congress. so no matter how big the cuts are, if they are stretched out over 10 years and not accompanied by a constitutional amendment we have no guarantee they will be followed. >>chris: do you get a sense both sides are trying to get a deal and making it small enough to be palatable because the democrats and the administration will not make a big deal without tax increases, so both will take small incre

proceeding all through making headlines for wrong reasons but making big headlines nonetheless. >> we are following awe tlel' more on the nfl next week. mark, thanks. >>> the numbers are out. not the poll numbers and not the dow industrial. we are talking about the big number of bucks your presidential candidates are raising to win the white house. jim acosta, who has got the biggest bank? >> reporter: sometimes he's are the numbers that count, kyra, this morning. it looks like at this point, the person who has got the biggest bank right now is mitt romney. we haven't gotten any official totals in right now. yesterday his campaign did confirm that he is expected to bring in between $15 million and $20 million in the first quarter of fund-raising this year. not as much as he raised for the 2008 campaign but, still, way ahead of the rest of the pack. jon huntsman, we can mention, he also has a pretty big fund-raising hall for a guy that not a lot of people know about. $4 million. we should mention half of that, though, is money he kicked in himself. he is part of a very wealthy family t
: it is a huge moment for u.s. women's soccer. can they beat back france today? that is the big question. you know what? so many people around the world, as well as people watching them in germany, are actually rooting and cheering for the u.s. they are the favorites to win the world cup. i mean, they just had an incredible performance. you know? here you see them practicing. they had this incredible match against brazil and in the last minute, they scored a goal and then ended up winning on penalty shoot-outs. everyone is still buzzing about how i credible it was. so the question is can they pull it off today? and what many people are saying is that they have got the fitness, they have got the never say die attitude and they hope that they can manage it today. you know, they are very fit and the french have to work their da derrieres off today. >> i think they all will be working their derrieres off. what do you think? you've been watching this closely. >> you've got germany out. that was a huge team and the favorites to win the competition in germany. they got booted out. the brazilians, a
crisis at a time when she is surging in the polls ahead one of the big favorites sarah palin. jonathan karl is in washington and has more on all this. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. there is no presidential candidate with more momentum right now than michele bachmann. ♪ my home in -- >> reporter: no republican presidential candidate has taken a harder line on the debt ceiling showdown than michele bachmann. >> we were all shocked and appalled that president obama dangled out in front of the cameras that senior citizens may not get their checks. that's a very dangerous statement to make. we don't believe -- excuse me. excuse me. we don't believe that for a moment. >> reporter: tough talk from bachmann is nothing new but she now speaks with new-found authority as a top tier contender for the republican presidential nomination. a new national poll puts bachmann firmly in second place as the leading challenger to front-runner mitt romney. and in key first caucus state iowa, three separate polls over the past week put bachmann in first place. >> republican primary vo
the impact. but i'm wondering, two of the candidates will be coming out after this big debate here in washington. does that give an advantage or a disadvantage or is it unclear based on the outcome? >> well, it's unclear based on the outcome certainly. the congresswoman and the congressman have both been very strong in their opposition. >> no compromise. right? >> that will appeal to many people in the base of the party. and i think what you've heard from some of the other candidates is somewhat more equivocal position. though john huntsman this week came out strongly for the boehner plan and said it was the only plan going and that the republicans and everybody ought to get behind it. congresswoman bachmann in particular, i think, has staked out that kind of tea party position. and she'll probably benefit from that. i think the other candidates are trying to get a piece of that, but try to go more broadly. >> i think bachmann and to a certain extent paul also risk some pleasure of backlash, or could in their don't raise the ceiling at all and their positions, playing down is a pot
, but if a shrunken version of the boehner big does -- or if they go to an emergency extension, the president will be right back in the same predicament he's in right now. i think a lot of people are upset. they blame the republicans more than the democrats for the gamesmanship, but the fact is the republicans have also backed the president into a corner, even if they're doing it in a way that's not popular. >> i want you to analyze these two possibilities, one the president could give away more of the store, more spending cuts, maybe enough to get us thus this increase. which would make the redhots happy. no tax increase at all. the other possibility is to marry what boehner wants right now with what mcconned was talking about next year, where next year it can be are can be raised by the president, only the house would have to come back with a two thirds veto, so it seems there is a possibility for compromise, but the easiest thing is for the president to throw the whole bomb game, say, you win this year, not next year. >> i don't think he can do >> i don't think he can do that, chris. when
the band-aid. eat our peas. >> reporter: of course, taxes remains the big sticking point. the president, though, insisting that nothing would change before 2013 so it would not happen during a difficult economic environment, but house speaker john boehner saying that there's no reason to raise taxes in order to control spending. he believes the best way to get revenue is by improving the overall economy by creating jobs. he says he is willing to get a deal done with democrats and the white house, but, in his words, it takes two to tango and they are not there yet. >> dan lothian at the white house, thanks. >>> the debt crisis overseas sending a chill through wall street this morning. less than half hour before the opening bell, u.s. stocks may be headed for another rough day. ali velshi is joining us live from new york. ali, what does it mean? >> well, you know, first of all, futures seem to be leveling out a little bit, kyra. a couple of things going on here. one as dan was just saying, we just heard from the treasury secretary who is making a speech and he says he is expecting a deal
other big stories we've got going on today, one of them being casey anthony will walk out of jail a free woman in six days. now, you hear that, and think back to 48 hours ago. it was at this time tuesday that casey anthony was facing the possibility of life in prison, maybe even facing the death penalty. what a difference 48 hours makes, because today she is counting the days until she walks out of the jail a free woman. she is counting down to six. you know by now, casey anthony was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter caylee, but convicted on four counts of lying to investigators. just before sentencing, the deceives tried and failed to reduce down to one. here are the four counts. lying about working at university studios, liking about caylee being with a nanny, the fick tick zanny you heard solve about. and lying about speaking to caylee on the phone. this morning, the judge melvin perry gave her the maximum to each of those counts. >> i will sentence you to one year in the orange county jail, xwokting a $1,000 fine on each count all four counts to run consecutive to each o
in washington. leading off tonight, too big to fail? here are the two things to take away from mitch mcconnell's offer. one we are no longer looking at democrats versus republicans or liberals versus conservatives. this is a fight between the leaders and protesters, people who are responsible for america's financial health and those who never have to worry about an election. second, money talks, b.s. walks. when major financial groups told the gop that default was not an option, they suddenly saw the light. as phil graham once said -- -- we learned that many on the right only pretend to care about the debt. what they care about is shrinking government and lowering taxes. tonight we're going to put a spot light on the unsupported republican claim that somewhat higher taxes for the better off means fewer jobs for everyone. also, the rupert murdoch scandal has claimed another victim. murdoch has dropped his bid to buy british sky broadcasting tonight. will it threaten his holdings here in the states? >>> the latest poll on republicans may show that mitt romney is in more trouble than we th
a lot. he want as big deal. will he and the president find a compromise? guess who is back? nancy pelosi, your favorite friend, the foam house speaker is back at the table and is in open the debt talks and wants to point the fingers at ... guess who? >> day one of 85 of the republican majority in the congress and we have not seen one jobs bill come to the floor. >>dave: day 185. we expect the republican congress to create jobs in less than a year yet the democrats had four years in control of congress and did what for jobs? >> and the day of fast tush around in the media and all at, quick response from romney about her comments. listen to this. uncertainty is probably the one thing, a heck of a problem. is my company going to be here? it is tough. things have to change. have to change. >>dave: that ad in response to comments early this week, from the senior advisor to president obama who said people will not vote based on the unemployment rate and jobs numbers but based on their situation. well, their situation is the unemployment rate. it is the jobs numbers. that is their reality. so,
this theater for however long it's been now really pumps it up. i never thought there was going to be a big deficit or debt reduction deal between the two parties because it's not in the interest of either party. i think the republicans were tactically terrible because they allowed obama to sort of portray himself or present himself as the one who is above the fray and who is interested in making the most cuts to the budget and to the debt going forward. and then making it appear, not appear but it's true, the republicans are walking away from a real deal to cut spending in this country. also, it gave obama and the democrats a chance to spotlight the republicans position on taxes. there's no way to get a handle on budget deficits over the long term debt without raising somebody's taxes. >> if this is raising the white flag, if this is going against the base, what is the difference between this and cutting a deal on tax loopholes and other things that would not impact their message overall. what makes this better? >> this is horrible. >> it's stupid. >> it's a nightmare. it's cynical. the se
. if you are going to rule out medicare now and say yeah, we are going to make big cuts but rule out medicare. that means democrats are focusing on 10%, discretionary spending that is our investments, r & d, education, infrastructure. the things we need to double and triple down on. the things we can afford to do in trying to catch up with china if we take care of the long-term structural debt on taxes, on health care and these other issues. >> yeah, we talked about the fact our health care system is at least 50% more expensive procedure by procedure than any other place in the world. we have this grip on a lot of the health care sector. we need health care reform. this is obvious. but it's been obvious for years. they don't do it on either side. >> coming up, connecticut governor dannel mall low. >> he's going to yell at you. >> i think he's in for a fight, yeah. yeah. >> mika is mad. she's not putting up with it anymore. >> this is incredible. sexual assault allegations against strauss-kahn. why it's on the verge of collapse. >> he was in yonkers at the time. come on. >>> first, he
-old lynx who shuddered at the thought of diversity. >> we don't want it. just be a big muddle. we just want to preserve our race. >> reporter: the twins say they're quite liberal now, embracing medical marijuana after lynx was diagnosed with cancer freshman year and lamb sought relief from back pain and scoliosis. for lynx and lamb, grooming into white supremacy started at birth. they were nurtured on racist beliefs by their mother april, who is unapologetic about her parenting and her beliefs. >> we were christians, they would be singing christian rock songs. but we're not, we're white nationalists. so of course that's a part of our life and i'm -- i share that part of my life with my children. >> reporter: but today, april believes the girls are just falling into peer pressure. they're saying what everyone wants to hear so they won't be harassed anymore. let's face it, it's not popular to be a white separatist. and they want to be popular. the girls, however, say this is who they are. and that time, experience, and love has changed them for the better. lamb says, we just want to come from
with fake documents to get real passports and then come to the u.s. and a big part of the problem is that countries aren't sharing information with each other. part of this government accountability office report says "even when countries have terrorist screening information, they may not have reciprocal relationships to share such information or other traveler information such as passenger airline lists with other countries to limit the ability of preventing travel of known or suspected terrorists." even though a passport can't kill someone, it can help a bad guy get in position to do some serious damage. >> travel documents are the same as weapons to terrorists. they can't carry out their plots without them. with our partners, and again, some of that is out of our control. we're closer to a c. >> and this gao report deals heavily with the breakdown, basically in communication with other countries. here at home, though, we are not perfect because since november 2001, just a few weeks after 9/11, there have been 25,000 security breaches at u.s. airports. that's about seven a day a
be drawn there from. now, the big question is will the defense bring up again those claims that casey anthony was molested by her father and brother to explain her behavior and her lying regardless of the fact we've heard little evidence to support these claims. this, we will hear tomorrow. >> and with the rebuttle case, who did they call to the stand? >> we know that one of the most important pieces for the state's case is to prove that this was a premeditated murder. the premeditation charge was challenged when we heard cindy anthony on the stand last week saying that she was reasonable for searching chloroform, neck breaking and a series of other rather incriminating items on the household computer and so, the prosecution brought in yesterday a series of witnesses, one of which was an officer at her company who could prove according to her time sheets, that she was at work and not at home when those suspicious searches for being made. there was also a challenge to dr. spitz' opinion. he was brought in by the defense, that the autopsy made on caylee's body was shoddy. so that's what
's why. big area of high pressure. there's a big strong upper ridge. this is just a heat pump that will continue. and the bad news is, this goes into at least thursday. in fact, jet stream guns up a little further into canada so that heat will be creeping up north as the ridge intensifies. we don't see this breaking down at least until the weekend. so the mid section of the country is going to continue to bake the northeast gets a little bit of a break as we head on into the next 72 hours. ann? >> all right, al, thank you so much. we'll get the rest of your forecast in a bit. >>> for now, to britain's deepening phone hacking scandal. this morning there are claims that journalists from other rupert murdoch's other papers were involve and the alleged target is former p.m. gordon brown. stephanie goss is in london with this. stephanie, good morning. >> good morning, ann. gordon brown does not mince his words when he spoke to the bbc this morning about rupert murdoch's papers me said those papers used people to gather information on known criminals. the allegations appearing in th
our fiscal house in order, they say, and they want big spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt ceiling. i will say, though, house republican leaders, they seem to at least be publicly more open to the idea. john boehner, the house speaker, even saying yesterday that he thinks mitch mcconnell has done very good work. we've also heard from some democrats, suzanne, that they seem to be open to the idea as well. one important point to make. while this doesn't require spending cuts, this mcconnell plan does have a catch. it would force very politically tough votes ahead of the 2012 election that republicans opposed to the debt ceiling could be on the record opposing, and also it's designed to then put the full responsibility of raising this debt ceiling of this new debt right in the lap of the president. there is some planning there. >> kate, how much do you understand what's going on here? obviously you've got the president, you have democrats, you have republicans, but republicans are even divided amongst themselves in this debate and it seems like there is a rift now between john
, chrislhayes. rachel maddow is up next. >> any big plans? >> may light off a firework fmplgts they're illegal where you live, i won't tell anyone. >> just between you and me. >> exactly right. >>> thanks for staying with us the next hour. it is the start of a long fourth of july weekend. one of those days where if you are not on vacation already, you sort of feel like a sucker, because it feels like everybody else is on vacation. but even on a sultry friday night in july, heading into a long holiday weekends, there are two outstanding things that happened in american politics today. there is no relationship to what another whatsoever. i won't stremp and try to make one. we're going to do one of these stories and then the other. the first one is this -- >> conservatism is an act of creation and love. a love for a cherished way of life we have inherited and will bequeath to our children. conservatism is the ligation of ideology. we sent our mind to the world. not of the world to our mind. we'll move every mountain. we will meet every challenge and we will strive towards the light for the blosso
them and this one will leave a big bite mark. >> is that a valid excuse? that maybe some staffer read it? >> i find that mind-boggling. such a statement would scream out to you as just incredibly wrong. that you cannot -- if you are a first-year student in high school and you read that statement, that's fwot to send up some alarms to you that says -- wait a minute. we can't sign this sort of thing. and particularly, not so much probably in the republican primary. if she does get into the general election, this sort of thing with independent voters just kills you dead. it's a nonstarter because it's such a fringe sort of way of thinking of things. >> it's also interesting that -- >> i would say that's probably why they didn't look at it. because i agree with you. had i read this and any of the republicans i talked to, they would say -- what the heck is this? i just think someone wasn't paying attention when they were doing their job. >> even in the explanation this group has put out, where retracted it, they did the classic -- this can be -- i'm sorry if you misconstrued this. they're
. however there is disagreement over that point, big disagreement over that point. >> the other thing we'll be looking at is of course whether or not there will be issue with the credit rating. we'll talk about that. rebecca thanks. chris? >> thank you. >>> there is news of another arrest in the widening phone hacking scandal in britain. rupert murdoch is being pressured to appear before lawmakers in london and washington. dana lewis is in london good morning. >> reporter: good morning, we're hearing a ninth person has been arrested in the phone hacking scandal, the former executive editor of the "news of the world," but the late breaking news here this morning is the british government committee has just issued a summons for rupert and james murdoch to appear before them to answer questions about what they knew in the phone hacking scandal but legally there is a serious question over whether they can be compelled to appear. damage control in high gear rupert murdoch and son james in london trying to find a way to put out the fire. news corp shut out "nut of the
, actually, if they know there's a big deal behind it will be quite -- wouldn't they, john heilemann? >> i think so. the time is tough right now. listen to harry reid and mitch mcconnell who know how the senate works and how long it takes to do the following things, to reform medicare and tax reform. they are things that typically can take many months to get done. >> isn't it a surprise? it wasn't a surprise the show started at 6:00 a.m. on the east coast. it's no surprise we have a deadline. >> to build the legislation is not something that can happen in the span of four or five days. you can't. the key issue is what obama will be wanting to see is the outlines of a deal where he has a good assurance the outlines of the deal can get past once the meat is put on the bones. if that's the case and the markets see that, everything will be fine. whether it's a few days extension or a couple weeks, it's going to take a lot to get to that point. there's no consensus on the house side among house republicans in favor of what the gang of six is doing. as we saw in the film, the video, house democr
